Setup Day at Model Expo

Model Expo 2023, Sandown Park Raceway Melbourne. Here’s a quick video tour of the pavilion with traders, competitors and clubs setting up their displays, plus a few photos of some of the first items to hit the tables.

Pakenham Modellers Group club display. The club’s theme this year is “Glamorous or Grimy”. I have one shiny model and one grimy model as part of the display.
Dick Johnson’s 1983 Bathurst qualifying crash in 1:18 scale! This will be a talking point of the show.
Someone’s competition bike model – nice finish on this.
My Richard Petty #43 Oldsmobile shares the platform with a Lancia rally car built by club President Graham Mahoney.
Military diorama.
Lots of empty tables on Thursday afternoon
Very clean build of Tamiya’s 1/12 scale Lotus 72
My dirty model – race grime on the 1989 Le Mans winner
Clean build of Beemax’s 1983 Brabham BT52, Nelson Piquet World champion
